rez Mentoring

Learning to live independently can be tough and doesn’t have to be done alone. Some young people don’t need intensive caseworkers but rather someone who they can talk to about life and learning everyday life skills.

REZ Mentoring provides young people with a trusted adult to help them build life skills and help build their resilience and confidence to maintain their tenancy or living arrangement.

Research informs us that quality mentoring relationships for young people have powerful positive effects.
